Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: QUIZ: The top 8 most played GD songs ever

This would be the ranking by the number of shows they were played at:
1.)Me And My Uncle
2.)Sugar Magnolia
3.)The Other One
4.)Playin' In The Band
5.)China Cat Sunflower
6.)I Know You Rider
7.)Not Fade Away

This is the ranking by plays, if you were to count multiple appearances within a show.For example, Playin'> Uncle John's > Playin' would be 2 :
3.)Other One
4.)Me & My Uncle
5.)Sugar Magnolia
6.)I Know You Rider
7.)China Cat

Lazy Lightning was only played about 100 time.

I based my response on info obtained at The Setlist Program, so I do question the accuracy.
Under "Top 8 Most Played" they have 545 times for China Cat, and if you search the song individually is lists 549 shows(?).
Also entries to the list vary in number by spelling differences.For example Me & My Uncle is listed also as Me And My Uncle.You get the idea.
